William and Kate meeting steel workers at Port Talbot

William and Kate meeting steel workers at Port Talbot”

Kate and Wills have been putting on a fearless face for the royal family, most recently stepping out at the BAFTAS.

"We were incredibly lucky her auto came and stopped right in front of us and she came straight over to us", Rhian told the Daily Mail.

The royal couple visited the south Wales resort of Mumbles Pier, meeting the rescue crews and volunteers at the local lifeboat station and watching the crew undertake a launch.

They passed a note explaining who they were to a police officer, and were delighted when Kate came out to meet them. "I'm so grateful for the time they gave to speak to all of us".

We're not surprised Kate knows exactly what to say to children, since she has three of them herself!

"We had to put the sails up and they came back and got us".

Prince William, 37, and Kate, 38, met members of the public at the seafront over looking Swansea Bay before heading to Joe's Ice Cream Parlour, where they chatted with a group of local parents and caregivers about life in the area, according to People.

There, Kate had a scoop of vanilla with a wafer, while William, a self-confessed "chocolate man", opted for sprinkles instead.

Passion project: During the visit to Joe's Ice Cream Parlour, the Duchess of Cambridge spoke to parents and families who have already taken part in her landmark early years development survey.

The couple's visit comes almost two weeks after the duchess visited Cardiff as part of a tour to launch a UK-wide survey to help improve early childhood. "My daughter and I met Kate Middleton today at Mumbles pier, where we waited an hour to see her".

In a recent newspaper interview, Natarajan Chandrasekaran, chairman of Tata Steel, called for the Port Talbot plant to become "self-sustaining" following substantial losses previous year.

Tata announced in November it would be cutting up to 1,000 United Kingdom jobs, part of a total reduction of up to 3,000 across Europe.

The couple will join a discussion between company directors and trade unions before meeting employees in the hot strip mill and its training academy.
